Mickaël Franck Poté (born 24 September 1984) is a Beninese international footballer who plays as a forward for Turkish club BB Erzurumspor.

Club career[edit]

Born in Lyon, Poté began his career in 2003 with Grenoble Foot, where he played only three games in his first season. After the season, he signed a contract with Cannes, where he stayed three years, playing fifty-one games and scoring nine goals. In the summer of 2007, he joined Clermont Foot, where he played thirty-six games in his first season, scoring five goals. In the spring of 2009, there were rumours that he might be transferred to Strasbourg[2] or Havre,[3] but neither transfer occurred. On 26 June 2009, he signed a three-year-contract with Ligue 1 side Nice.[4] On 2 January 2011, he joined Ligue 2 side Le Mans on a six-month loan deal.[5] On August 2011, he left France and signed a three-year contract with 2. Bundesliga club Dynamo Dresden.[6] In 2014, Poté moved to Omonia, where he was Cypriot's League top scorer with 17 goals in a season. In the 2015–16 season, he played for Adana Demirspor at Turkish 1st Division and won the top scorer title with his 20 goals.

International career[edit]

Poté is a Beninese international. He was eligible to represent the Ivory Coast, due to his father's roots. Instead, he chose to play for Benin, his mother's country.[7] His debut game was on 7 September 2008, against Angola.[8]
